Who Speaks for Reform in Islam?

    R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. at Washington Times:The problem with Islam, as I see it, is that it has never reformed itself to accord with the modern world. Of all the major religions, it looks not to the future but to the past. Its impulse comes not from reformers looking to a future living in comity with Westerners. Its impulse comes from fundamentalists looking backward to centuries long gone, and the fundamentalists want to impose their vision of the world on all civilizations. If there are modernizers in Islam, they do not speak up. They do not even protect their ancient mosques.
